T cell-depleted grafts may increase fungal and viral infections following allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT). A severe human herpesvirus-6 infection was detected after a CD45RA T cell-depleted fully matched unrelated donor HSCT for an adult patient with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia with t(9;22) (q34.1;q11.2). Despite combined treatment with ganciclovir and foscarnet, a rapid multi-organ failure set in and was fatal.
